We Found the Ancestor to the Megalodon! Finding RARE Shark Teeth in a Florida Creek
Shark teeth are VERY common in Florida. The Sunshine State has been above and below water multiple times within the last few million years. Sharks shed a LOT of teeth, so naturally in ancient ocean sediments, shark teeth tend to be fairly common if conditions were right for fossilization to occur. But, the shark teeth in this specific video are a bit more uncommon in Florida sediments. These are teeth from sharks that were alive prior to the Megalodon shark. In these sediments we can find the ancestor to the Megalodon, the Angustiden shark! Their teeth are quite similar to the Megalodon but they have cusps on the side. Hope y'all enjoy the video and adventure!
